May the force be with you, Carrie Fisher.
On Saturday, May 4th, Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd paid tribute to her late mother with an Instagram post on what many fans have dubbed “Star Wars Day.”
The date of May 4th has long had significance for Star Wars fans as a pun on the franchise’s popular line, “May the force be with you.”
In honor of the occasion, Lourd shared a photo of herself with her mother, who died in December 2016 of a cardiac arrest.
The actress captioned the post by spelling out “May the Fourth” in emojis.
This unofficial Star Wars holiday was a sad one for not just Lourd, but for many fans.
Millions of people are grieving the loss Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), who died just last week.
